Posterior talar articular surface - Facies articularis talaris posterior

Description

On the superior surface of the calcaneus is a large usually somewhat oval-shaped facet, the posterior talar articular surface, which looks upward and forward; it is convex from behind forward, and articulates with the posterior calcaneal facet on the under surface of the talus. It is bounded anteriorly by a deep depression which is continued backward and medialward in the form of a groove, the calcaneal sulcus.
